Ballet Fantastique accepts Northwest, national, and international company audition applications throughout the year for company and apprentice/trainee positions. We seek dancers with strong technical proficiency and powerful artistry. A Vaganova background is a plus, though not required.
Our vision. In today's world, we believe that it is no longer enough to be “simply” a dance company in the mold of generations of dance companies gone before. Instead, Ballet Fantastique operates under the belief that companies must be powerfully energetic and versatile—committed to building new audiences for the arts—just as they are profoundly invested—committed to working together to do what it takes to bring world-class art into being. And so, we are artistically bold and unapologetically tenacious, carving new niches for our art and building passionate new audiences for dance in the process. We are refreshingly humble, recognizing that each of us is an essential and contributing member of the team who makes possible the work that we do. We have fierce artistic integrity, but we are also open. We strive to continuously improve.
Just so, Ballet Fantastique believes that it is no longer enough to be “simply” a dancer. We seek a new company members eager to grow as we grow, contributing to and accelerating the success of the organization we share. We seek new company members with talent, strength, artistic voice, a great work ethic and sense of humor, personality, and an insatiable appetite for what's next.
